Can you do a full explanation / progress thread on how you created the one-off tuffs? That's incredible!

i send a PM to the Admin.

For those who want to know more about process to built the Wheels
complete story here :
http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=378246

In my opinion these wheels weren't manufactured for 3 reasons :
first : the weight of the wheels set for a junior kid bike ?
second : quality of plastic (strength and rigidity) for making thin shape ?
third : small market ?

Thanx
